Fireworks

Had my G4 Mac laptop in my lap. Smelled smoke. Felt hot place on my knee. Sparks flew. Screen went blank. Please expect communications to be on special schedule for a few days.

    As I sit here typing this on my iBook G4 laptop, my condolences, Kyle. Very strange—I know of logic board issues with the iBooks (happened to my new one within a week of purchase, but fixed promptly under warranty), but as of late, issues with smoking laptops I thought were a Dell issue, not Apple’s. It could be the battery or any of a number of things. If this was a PowerBook, they are known to get pretty hot, but still shouldn’t flame out.
